The MEP commented on the protest of Kiev because of the visit of the delegation to the Crimea

The head of delegation of European politicians, French member of the European Parliament, Thierry Mariani, called the ritual protest of the Ukrainian authorities on a visit to Crimea, describing it with the expression "in one ear flew, flew to another".

The delegation of the European politicians and experts is in the Crimea on a working visit. The delegation consisted of nine people, including five French members of the European Parliament.

In turn, the representative of Ukraine to the EU Nikolay Tochitskii appealed to the head of the European Parliament David Sassòli and the head of the European Parliament Committee on foreign Affairs David McAllister to condemn the visit of French MEPs in the Crimea, which the Ukrainian side considers illegal.

"It's my seventh visit to the Crimea. This has not changed my life. There is a certain ritual every time the Ukrainian Ambassador writes a letter and demands new sanctions , but it changes nothing. The text of the letter is ready, only the date is different every time. As we say: "In one ear flew, and flew to another". Approximately the same effect," said Mariani reporters.
